Friday Letter Erroneously Released:
NYS Education Dept.: No Change in School Mask guidelines--Wear Them!
Sunday afternoon, the New York State Education Department sent an email to superintendents saying mask guidance for students would not be changing Monday. The email explained executive staff told the education department Dr. Howard Zucker's Friday letter to the CDC was to prompt a response and wasn't an indication guidance would change for Monday.
"The rules in their school regarding masks, according to the state education department, are the same Monday as they were on Friday," Michael Cornell, Hamburg Superintendent and President of the Erie Niagara Superintendent's Association, said.
